Jody MacDonald

As a photographer who travels the world capturing different cultures, I am inspired by other strong women who challenge our perception. This Bajau sea gypsy woman is fishing for her family in the warm waters of the Togian islands in Indonesia, where the basic need to survive supersedes the creation of gender stereotypes. In places where time seems to have stood still, hierarchy becomes irrelevant and both women and men forge ahead equally to take on the necessary roles to feed their families. When reflecting back on history itโ€™s impossible to ignore the important role women have always played in sustaining our communities. Thanks @natgeo for including me in celebrating #womenofimpact here at @cannes_lions this week in France!

@dazzelbrazell

@jodymacdonaldphoto I interacted with many Bajau during my work in the Philippines. I didnโ€™t realize there were communities of them in Indonesia as well, but it makes sense due to their transient nature. Thank you for sharing!
